Family Nutrition: Brinner

Isn’t serving breakfast for dinner magnificent?  Last night was one of those nights where I forgot to take ingredients out of the freezer.  I was travelling all day from client to client and my kids had long days at school followed by shots at the doctors.  They were a little grouchy to say the least and I was losing my mind.  As my hunger pains kept getting louder and louder, the last thing I wanted to do was order out.  What to do, what to do? That’s when my husband suggested using the awesome farm fresh eggs.

As you can see, my husband whipped up a quite the breakfast burrito.  A serving of each had two farm fresh eggs, an ounce of milk, two ounces of cheddar cheese, and a vegetable medley of asparagus, mushrooms, and tomato.  Boy was it good!  I topped it off with Frank’s original Red Hot and my husband topped it off with salsa.  We also had one cup of fresh strawberries as a side which was perfect to the palate.  All in all I estimate this dinner to contain about 410 calories, 360 for the burrito and 50 for one cup of strawberries.  Not only are the calories reasonable but you are getting a great source of protein and vitamin D from the eggs as well as fiber from the whole wheat wrap (This Santa Fe wrap had 7 grams in one serving) and vegetables.  Add a glass of skim milk for an additional 80 calories and you are gaining more protein, vitamin D and Calcium.
                                                                                                       
This concoction is great for your kiddos too.  I suggest giving your toddlers a half of a burrito and sneaking as many vegetables in as you possibly can.  Go ahead and try this recipe on your family and let me know how you like it. Good luck and be well.

The Truth Behind Clean Eating

A quick trip to the grocery store or chain restaurant and you will likely be bombarded with the concept of “clean eating” foods that claim to be “organic”, “natural”, “non GMO”, and “gluten free”. There is also the laundry list of foods you should avoid such as high fructose corn syrup, processed foods, and various toxins or chemicals. As a consumer it can be very overwhelming and intimidating to choose which foods are best for you.
While clean eating is not a new sensation, it has become increasingly popular in part due to misinformation on social media. Fear mongering is the latest marketing strategy in which companies are deliberately arousing fear in consumers to help sell their product. For example, products claim to be non-GMO when in fact it is not produced as a GMO food in the first place. There are only 8 genetically modified crops commercially prepared in the U.S. Products that have never contained gluten have a “Gluten free” label on them. Then there is the irrational conce…

A Note to Self before "Bathing Suit Season"

We are coming up on Memorial Day Weekend. The pools will open, beach season begins, and everyone is scurrying around to buy new bathing suits or cover ups. Although I LOVE summer there's an aspect of this time of year that I very much dislike.  I absolutely cannot stand the insecurity bathing suits bring to the mind. How many of your friends' Facebook and Instagram posts read "Gotta get bikini ready" or "I'm not ready for bathing suit season?" It's on everyone's minds and we have much better things to worry about people.

The fact of the matter is that MOST people feel vulnerable in a bathing suit. Think about it you are practically naked and I'm pretty sure the woman whose body modeled your final product may have had longer legs or is 15 years old.

Is it really worth allowing yourself to feel vulnerable and insecure over something that realistically isn't even created to showcase your body's strengths?  What in the world does how yo…
